Self-Care Nursing Concept


I need help in writing my concept analysis theory paper. This week I’m working every day and need help. I’m taking course NR501 at Chamberlain College of Nursing. The paper should be 8-10 pages long with at least 6 scholarly sources from 5 years or less. The pages do not include the title and reference pages.  The paper needs to be in APA format. The concept analysis I have chosen is self-care by Dorthea Orem’s Theory. I have attached the guidelines and rubric for this assignment.
